St Mirren are selling pay-per-view stream access to Celtic supporters on Wednesday and the cost will be cheaper than the recent Ross County fixture.
Celtic’s match has not been selected by Sky Sports and as it’s away from home there is also no ‘Pass to Paradise’ access from the Scottish champions for season ticket holders.
That means the only legal way to watch the Scottish Premiership clash within the UK & Ireland will be via St Mirren’s pay-per-view service and they are already selling passes that will provide supporters access on Wednesday night.
You can purchase your stream for £12.50 via https://ppv.stmirren.com/ which is £2.50 cheaper than the £15 stream available from Ross County on Saturday.
Our match against @CelticFC on Wednesday night is live on PPV.

Some may still see it as an expensive option but, presumably, the Buddies have tried to weigh up demand for the fixture and priced it as appropriately as possible.
It could be a good earner for the top-flight side in difficult times and I can’t begrudge them that.
I had a fairly good experience with the Ross County service over the weekend. It was exceptionally easy to register and purchase, with the process taking less than five minutes.
There were a few technical difficulties including initially muddled sound and a disconnection prior to kick-off.
However, from one or two minutes into the match onwards, I had no issues with the stream.
The only downside was a poor picture quality compared to the 1080p HD offerings we get from big broadcasters.
I would have preferred a more affordable option but as I’ve stated, I can also understand why clubs are trying to maximise their revenue for one-off fixtures when crowds are not allowed through the turnstiles.
The same broadcast partners work with St Mirren so we can expect a similar standard of service this week as Neil Lennon’s Bhoys look to pick up another league victory.
Worldwide fans can still watch the match live via the club’s online Celtic TV channel, with kick-off at 7:45pm from Paisley.
